Abstract

An actinomycete strain, HM7, was isolated from sandy soil from the banks of the Arvand River, Khoramshahr, Iran. In a study conducted using a polyphasic taxonomic approach, it was found that this strain represented a novel species in the genus . Strain HM7 had long, branched substrate mycelia and the aerial mycelium completely fragmented to long chains of rod-shaped spores. The cell wall of strain HM7 contained -diaminopimelic acid, galactose and ribose. The predominant phospholipids were phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine diphosphatidylglycerol, and phosphatidylcholine. The main menaquinones were MK-10(H), MK-10(H), MK-10(H) and MK-9(H). Strain HM7 showed the highest degree of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with UTMC 00102 (99.8 %) and YIM 28A4 (99.3 %), but differed significantly from these type strains based on DNA–DNA hybridization data (37.6 and 38.9 % relatedness, respectively). Physiological, biochemical and phenotypic characteristics allowed strain HM7 to be differentiated from related species. On the basis of results from phenotypic and phylogenetic analyses, strain HM7 is considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain of this species is HM7 ( = UTMC 00103 = DSM 45278 = CCUG 58831).
